Ir­ish women still wait­ing for a coach

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Rugby -

What news from the rud­der­less Ire­land women’s squad?

As the Red Roses, the English women, tune up for a three match se­ries against Canada in Novem­ber, one on the un­der­card of Eng­land v Samoa at Twick­en­ham, Claire Mol­loy’s squad can look for­ward to a train­ing camp with­out a head coach.

You may have heard, Tom Tier­ney (above) stepped down af­ter guid­ing Ire­land from the fourth ranked team in the game to ninth fol­low­ing a toxic build up to a dis­as­trous World Cup cam­paign.

Tier­ney’s en­deav­our landed him a job some­where else in the IRFU coach­ing sys­tem.

That was de­cided be­fore the tour­na­ment yet his re­place­ment does does not merit sim­i­lar at­ten­tion.

The IRFU have not even both­ered up­dat­ing the women’s fix­ture de­tails ahead of the Six Na­tions.
